More About This Title ¡El arte o la vida! El caso Rembrandt


Tzvetan Todorov, one of the last scholars of our time, opens up this illuminating essay on the work of Rembrandt with just one key question: What is the process that makes an artist become exceptional? The author analyzes the work of the great painter to reveal some of his secrets, although each new revelation begets new questions. 


Tzvetan Todorov is the author of Elogio de lo cotidiano and Elogio del individuo. He has taught classes at Yale, Harvard, and Berkley. In 2008 he received the Prince of Asturias Award for Social Sciences.
